    Either the police in Hong Kong is incompetent or they are extremely lenient, otherwise , how do you explain the rioters are still doing damage to Hong Kong for 4 straight months without one of them being killed or the movement crushed. If police brutality is alleged, then most of the rioters would have been locked up, killed, or at least seriously injured by now. Much like what would happen if they tried to attack the police in the West. The police in Hong Kong is showing too much constraint. The Western media is being selective in what they report or show. Then the question is why?

      I meant to say "restraint" not constraint.

        No democracy is being destroyed by rioters taking away the freedom for the ordinary people of Hong Kong to live in peace and to voice their opinions because of fear. Much like what you accused China is doing.

                Police: they claim to be families of the policemen, but I don’t know any of them.

                Report: I see. So you think they’re posing as fake families?

                So desperate to make stories

                  I really can't believe these monstruous people speaking against the protesters for fighting for their rights. People who argue that they are destroying stuff are missing the point : not spending the rest of their life as prisioners. So come on, stop saying crap. Stand with Hong Kong !

                      似乎有一种错觉,香港的所有人都自觉站到政府的对立面上了,口中不这么说,只是说警察的不公平,可笑的是世界上可没这么公平的警察,诸多示例都早已指出,没有哪国警察会站在这种对警察施暴的人群上。他们似乎认为自己的权利是平白无故得来的,能用一切手段去争取自己觉得想要的权利,然后暴力也需要无条件包容,但世界上哪里有这么便宜的事情,那些所谓的民主国家的进程那个不经历长时间的阵痛和反复,美国黑人几十年前还低人一等,现在也只是改善。香港的市民似乎觉得自己高人一等,要拿到世界最好的权利,似乎与其他发达国家的人相互联系或勾结就能拿到利器一举定乾坤。这种思维习惯和看待世界的方式,在长时间的有心熏陶下,他们估计打心底就忘记了这个世界根本就么有那么美好的事情。只能预祝他们求仁得仁。

                        A typical bloody biased reporting. She claimed the majority of the people support the protestors/rioters.she choose who to interview to rioters and their supporters. The reporter should know that if she behaves like those HK she will be arrested and if she resists she will be beaten!

                                      NYT never shows how the police are usually surrounded and beaten by these "protestors" before retaliating. Always cuts the beginning off. Guys, please watch the live streams that show the whole story

This is actually quite selfish of her and her children would not necessarily appreciate it.

But what's the difference you have with them? People who have other opinion, you just oppress them! Politics doesn't work that way

This is caused by the weak government who was too gutless to own up to their actions and biased media who had mercilessly demonized the police and blindly beautified the rioters.

                                                              My take on the protest violence is that there are violent (/criminal) elements in BOTH the police force and the protesters.
                                                              Those are the extreme minority. The scariest part is that there is no one who could keep the law-breaking police officers accountable. They also received orders to terrorize normal citizens apparently.
                                                              The key to ending the protests is the government, but it continues to let HK bleed irresponsibly by pitting the police force against the citizens.
